Al-Kindi was speaking at the Abu Dhabi-Belgium Business Forum, which attracted more than 150 Belgian and Emirati companies to the United Arab Emirates' capital city recently.
The forum focused on ways to increase commercial, economic and technical cooperation between the two countries. Al-Kindi emphasized that it was also an opportunity to discuss ways of boosting investments and trade exchange between companies.
Also in attendance were Pieter de Crem, Belgian secretary of State for Foreign Trade; Dominique Mineur, ambassador of Belgium to the UAE; and Abu Dhabi Chamber board members Sanad Al-Miqbali, Ahmed Al Soudin, Hamad Al-Awadhi and Khan Zaman.
During the forum, De Crem praised the relationship between the two nations.
“On the international level, the UAE occupies the 16th place in the list of international partners to Belgium, which makes it the most important trade partner to Belgium in the Arab world," he said.
